Yesterday was exhaust day.
I removed the stock head pipe and installed American Customs Power Flex header. My heat shields were reused and I kept the Screaming Eagle Street Cannon slip ons. Because my new air ride suspension has a wider range of travel I will have to relieve the mufflers near the lower shock mount. Ya, I'm gonna whack them with a hammer. They don't need much "adjusting" and will be hidden behind the saddle bags. In the end this setup may add a little power and noise and will definitely run cooler than stock, a welcome relief with the weather we've been having. I'll let you know how that turns out.
Next will be to replace the air filter and flash tune the ecm.
